The result is a harmonious stone whole, arrangement methods and absolute harmony within the cathedral.
The cathedral and the nearby renaissance town hall, as well as the nearby churches, palaces, and the Prince’s Palace presently housing the County Museum, probably form Croatia’s heritage’s most beautiful square.
